    ♬Gonna keep on tryin
    Till I reach the highest ground..♬

    Words, music and recorded by Stevie Wonder.

    I was delighted to learn on New Year’s Eve that Thoughtful Legal Management has received a 2008 CLawBie (tied with Jordan Furlong’s Law21 blog) in the Practice Management Award category.  Jordan’s excellent blog has also taken top Canadian blog award, for which he should be justly proud!

    I am humbled by the quality and skill of all the other winners and nominees – and I wish to extend my congratulations to all winners and nominees alike.  Please check out all the blogs that Steve Matthews has listed on www.clawbies.ca. and add them to your RSS feeder!

    I would also like to thank those who put forward thoughtfullaw.com for nomination. My thanks goes out to all the readers, for which, truly, this blog would not otherwise exist.

    The Canadian blog community is being recognized not just nationally but internationally for its high standards, its collegiality and great work. For example, www.slaw.ca has been selected as one of the Top 100 Legal Blogs by the ABA Journal. I know that this ensures that everyone is working to world class standards!

    I also wanted to say thanks to Steve Matthews – for creating these awards, for keeping them going and knowing that he is ineligible for any of them since he administers them! His blogs and his work on the web ranks shoulder to shoulder with the best of them – indeed I would say he stands in a class all his own – and these awards are another example of his contribution to this community. I can only hope that I can follow his lead and, in turn, ‘pay it forward’ in some small fashion.

    Of course this all provides further motivation to keep trying to meet everyone’s expectations in 2009 – gonna keep on trying until I reach the highest ground!  Thanks again all!
